Description

Macquarie Island lies in the Southern Ocean, between Antarctica and New Zealand. A speck of green in the vast, windswept sea, it is a haven for many creatures that live above and below the waves. In One Small Island, Alison Lester and Coral Tulloch bring us the story of this remote and precious World Heritage Site. Together they explore the island's unique geological beginnings, discovery and degradation at the hands of humans, and the battle to restore it today.

This is a beautiful, award-winning picture book by much-loved children's book creators Alison Lester and Coral Tulloch about the remote and precious World Heritage site, Macquarie Island, and the battle to save it from environmental destruction. One Small Island asks the important question- can Macquarie Island and places like it be saved?
